Through adversity, a new life emerges
Bouncing back from one of the horrific episodes of world history—Idi Amin’s expulsion of 80,000 Asians from Uganda— Mohezin Tejani presents a collection of true stories about being a global Muslim refugee.
Liberated from the confines of his own culture by political realities, Tejani sets out to learn how to be rooted in the absence of a place to call home. His writing is a hypnotic bhangra dance through time and space where he deftly explores both geographical and psychological displacement. Yet it is precisely through such disorientation and a host of intercultural encounters that he eventually finds solace in being a ‘global village on two legs.’
Thank You, Idi Amin portrays the intersecting points of congruence among humans that are neither from the East nor the West, nor the North or South, but are all part of a global compass navigating the new world of tomorrow.
